Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I learned that when I was able to practice an idea, or speech, or concept several times over I was able to remember steps and ideas easier. I do this from the time that I know a test is headed my way! It also helps for me to do some prep and walk away for a day or so to allow the concepts take hold. With the advancements of technology and online tools this process has become a lot easier to put into action. So while I am not opposed to using paper and pencil, which I do often, I occasionally use online tools to help in the process. These online tools allow me to create flashcards and/or quizzes to create instruments specific to the concepts that I need to retain at a particular time, which is awesome! I use these tools because they are easy to create and are easily transported. I have access from my cell phone, which is always with me, and I can run drills on the fly. When faced with complicated Mathematics concepts that require computation, I revert back to the methods that teachers have used for years and years, paper and pencil most times but I have found sites that will provide step by step computations for viewing as well.
